I'm sorry I will not be able to attend the services. I knew him to be a quiet man, his eyes, however, spoke volumes. Upon learning I was moving to Milwaukee for college he pulled me aside and said he knew lots of women in Milwaukee from years back and they probably have some granddaughters I could date. Each time I saw him afterwards he said he'd have to dig out his little black book for me. Well, Great-Uncle Ed, I finally got a Milwaukee girl - even though her number didn't come from your book, I think you would approve none-the-less.

To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose, under heaven. A time to be born, a time to die, a time to laugh, a time to weep, a time to dance, a time to mourn...... It was my extreme pleasure to know you, and to share memories with you. You helped put the puzzle pieces together for us, and you let us know that we were loved by a good man. For this I thank you- You were a treasure. I didn't know you long, nor well, but you touched my heart. Thank-you Ed. I wish peace to you now, and peace to the hearts of your family members at this time of loss. Stephanie Seymour Sears Rippey

"Sometimes an angel appears in the form of a friend who says exactly the words we need to hear that day. Or, you unknowingly act as an angel to someone else, tossing off a message so casually that, though it saves another person's life, you hardly remember the moment at all." Uncle Ed as I call him was my dad's angel on earth and many years later, became my angel too. Love to you Ed. I'll never forget the day we met and took that drive! You helped me in so many ways - and I'm honored that you also helped my dad and my grandmother too! The Seymour girls send you a wink from earth and know that you are now with those you love. We'll see you again.
